Rokmen

Probably my favorite company. Has anyone ordered from them? I just ordered a mercerary front bumper and steering skid plate. they said the bumper was backordered by 14 bumpers and that the skid was in stock. Do you have any idea when i might be getting it?

did you all have good interactions with them? Will they send the two pieces seperately?

thanks

I'll post pics once i get it

Well remember that Rokmen is a smaller company with just a few employees to do all the work. The work and products they produce are outstanding. As for "how long" well give dave a call at rokmen...very good guy and is straight forward with you.

The products I've order came seperate as they don't box up their products up as most are bare steel....A shipping label attached "sticker" to them. With most product coming to you as bare metal you don't have to worry about scatched paint...and well...even the UPS/Fedex guy can not bend or hurt any of it.

Congrats on your new toys and I'm more than sure you will love the quailty of Rokmen's work.

Im a huge fan of them and have purchased a ton from them (Winch, complete under armor, rockers, dif covers, corner armor x2, and a few other goodies). Their products are top of the line and beautiful! As mentioned they are a small company and depending on what you order and their supplies it can get right out to you or take some time. Most of my parts were arrived in no time at all. However I know they recentely had an issue with their steel supplier (they only use some of the best grade and the supplier they had been using wanted to give them sub par steel for the same price so they fell a bit behind on a few of their products such as their front engine skids. Ive been waiting about 3 months for mine but have been told they are only about 2 weeks out now from getting them out. IMO it is still worth the wait.

I stronly reccomend them to anyone!

I mean come on.....who wouldnt want their Jeep to look like this! Im actually using this as a template to how I want my Jeep to look minus the front fenders and 40" tires.

Thanks for the good words - sorry for the delay, we've been working on so many things here that internet browsing time and been nill....

Steel is sitting at the laser cutter, po's issued, and they are starting to cue the parts..

Our last hurdle is getting them through them. Once they are in house, we pretty much work 24/7 here to get them built and shipped.

There is so much going on behind the scenes with us - that hopefully we won't have to endure too many more cycles like this.

Yeah, I keep going back to these guys. Front and rear bumpers, tank skid, steering box skid, waiting for the belly skid but supposed to be here soon. These guys are why you should buy American made products. Absolutely top quality materials, design, and workmanship. Welding is impeccable, TIG I think. Stuff is shipped bare steel, so you have to paint or coat, but that way no shipping scratches and you can finish to your taste. A little more expensive than some, but THAT'S why I buy from them, it's the best out there and my jeep is worth it.

Another vote for the awesomeness of the guys @ Rokmen.

When I was planning on building my Jeep up, I gave them a call, and I swear I was ready to get off the phone before they were. Any question I could come up with was answered. I was really blown away, its the reason the only armor I've bought was bought from them.

I can't say enough nice things about them.

Thank again for the good words...

Everything has made it through the laser - and is now waiting at the Robot for it's turn. Engine Transmission skidplates are first up, and we may have them tomorrow. Then the Bumpers are next in priority, so I hope to see them within a week - Then we bust 24/7 to get everything assembled, welded, finished and shipped etc...

The robot - in case anyone missed it.... (OK, it's just cool to watch regardless)



We've been keeping incredibly busy behind the scenes. Everything but our .250 items are in stock, and we have a few big custom builds going on too. There is so much going on behind the scenes that you don't get to see... But you will.... soon......

Thanks again for everyone's support - we appreciate every bit of it.

TT' are coming right after the bumpers.

I forgot this coming week is a long Holiday weekend - so that will push things out a little.

The Engine and Transmisison skid plates are here - and we are cranking on them as I type.. They should all go out early this week.

Worked through the weekend, and all the Engine Transmission Skids have shipped. Even have a couple in inventory now...

Bumpers are coming next - I think we'll be seeing them early next week.

Been pounding away on Bumpers, all orders for standard Merc Bumpers have been filled, and all Merc-GT's will ship by middle for this week.

Thanks for everyone's patience - every ounce of business is greatly appreciated!

Tummy Tucks, will be comming off the bending robot right as the GT's are going out the door..


BTW - this also means we are pretty much in stock on these items.

Thanks for the good words!


We have not had stand alone winch plates for a couple of years now. Our merc bumpers with integrated winch plates have been much popular. We may do another run of the stand alone winch plates. But it's not currently on the table.
